Hannity fires back at Barnette: "Lash out at me all you want!"

When Barnette caught wind of Oz’s remarks on Wednesday, she was not pleased. In a tweet that afternoon, the Jan. 6 Stop the Steal rally attendee urged Pennsylvanians to “never forget” how Hannity “intentionally interfered in our election sowing lies and disinformation.”

In response, later that night Hannity addressed Barnette’s comment despite saying he didn’t want to “belabor” the issue.

“Kathy, my first instinct was to put up all of your incendiary tweets again, and there’s a ton of them, but I really don’t need to defend myself,” the Fox host said. “You are the one that really needs to answer the questions about all of your comments, and all of your tweets that are there. You can lash out at me all you want. You are not the first person.”

Last week, Hannity showed viewers several of Barnette’s posts—one of which labeled then-President Barack Obama a “Muslim”—as part of his argument against her candidacy.
